vCheck asking for credentials with vCenter Appliance

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am currently building a new environment using vSphere 6.

I installed a vCenter Appliance 6.

I want to use my good old daily vCheck from Alan Renouf (latest version available).

When I run it against my new vCenter Appliance 6 it keeps asking me for my credentials...

I tried to use the same script to run it against my "old" Windows vCenter 5.5 and it doesn't ask me for credentials.

This is problematic as I want to schedule the vCheck...

vCenter Appliance is joined to active directory, AD authentification is working correctly.

FQDN is correctly set.

I am using PowerCLI 6 Release 1.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I found what was causing my problem...

I applied the resolution from this KB:

And now it works 🙂

vCheck should work fine with the VCSA- definitely the 5.5 appliance works as I use it myself. I'm in no rush to move to 6.0 though, so someone may be able to comment on that.

One thing to check would be your SSO config- I found that if you use AD as an LDAP server then passthrough didn't always work. Also, I *think* that it needed to be set as the default identity source.

Hello!

I didn't update as I was on holiday...

My identity source is Active Directory (Integrated Windows Authentication) - use machine account

I tried to set it as default as you suggested but still the same problem...

Any other idea?

Thanks for your help!

There was an issue raised for this on Github:

It appears that vCheck is not the problem, as running Connect-VIServer results in the same issue.
